I love that look! But I’m biased of course. 😉

Doh I uploaded the wrong pic with a band. Here it goes in all of its solo glory:

checkcheck:  thank you! It’s a 1.50 tcw on a 5.25-5.5 size finger (to give you an idea of the proportions).

My mom wore a 5 stone band alone for years.  She now has a giant marquise ring that she got for an anniversary but she sometimes wears the band.  It’s a very pretty look.

I bet sites like Berricle and Amazon have some cz ones you can order to try it out.  I think that ring from Whiteflash would be considered a custom and non-refundable if you don’t like it.

I think you easily could wear a five- or seven-stone, half-eternity band on your left hand — alone and even with your e-ring — if you choose one that is set so that it doesn’t have a visible drop off where the diamonds end. This is very difficult to describe in writing, but many half-eternity bands have a more dramatic drop off where the diamonds stop. However, some, like my seven-stone, half-eternity band from Memoire, doesn’t.

Here is one of their five-stone, half-eternity bands in yellow gold. If you compare the sides of this style of half-eternity band with the sides of the five-stone trellis band you posted, I think you’ll notice what I’m trying to convey.

Brielle:  I think this is the ‘drop off’ you’re describing?

amandajane4949:  No. I am referring to the fact that some half-eternity bands have an actual “width” to them across the top of the wearer’s finger, because where the diamonds end, they just stop at the sides, above the wearer’s finger, and there is a visible, steep drop off down to where the rest of the ring’s band continues to encircle the wearer’s finger.

The ring I have, and the similar one that I posted above, have the diamonds transition very softly and subtlety from where the diamonds stop to the rest of the band.

If you look at some of the different views of the ring the OP posted in her original post, I think you’ll see the contrast that I am trying to describe.
